The Names of God 

God himself assigned himself several titles or names in the Bible.

These titles actually identify characteristics or qualities of our God.

And as our God is complete in everything, in his "names" we find the fullness of the message that the "name" itself transmits.

We can give as an example: When God calls himself Yahweh Rapha (the God who heals), we are sure that He is the cure, because of His power, and this power guarantees us that what He says happens.

After all, He is El Shadday (The Almighty God).

We list below several of these titles or names given by God himself in the Bible:

YHWH (Yahweh) - Unpronounceable name of God; in the Bible it is translated as LORD or YAHWEH (Exodus 3:14-15).

Abba - Father.
Term normally used during prayers (Mark 14:36).

Adonai - Lord, Master.
God's name used in place of Yahweh when God's own name came to be considered too sacred to pronounce (Exodus 4:10-12).

El Elyon - The Most High God (Genesis 14:18).

El Elohe Israel - The God of Israel (Genesis 33:20).

El Olam - The Eternal God or God of Eternity (Genesis 21:33).

El Roi - The God Who Sees Me (Genesis 16:13).

El Shaddai - The Almighty God (Genesis 17:1).

Elohim - Creator God (Isaiah 17:6-7).

El Gmolah - The God Who Rewards (Jeremiah 51:56).
